Misinformation is disseminating information with no malign intent which you believe - mistakenly - to be true, but isn’t. Disinformation is dissemination of infirmation you know to be false aka a lie, maliciously, deliberately in order to deceive and/or discredit someone or something. This is the speciality of Governments and Mainstream Mediaocrity. ‘Misinformation’ is also what Govt and media call exposure of their lies.

yes, i believe the proper term i was looking for was DISinformation. It’s deliberate.

Maybe a Noam Chomsky quotation applies: "If you quietly accept and go along no matter what your feelings are, ultimately you internalize what you're saying, because it's too hard to believe one thing and say another ... Go to any elite university and you are usually speaking to very disciplined people, people who have been selected for obedience."

Like elite university students, these talking heads are "selected for obedience." They're the exact opposite of independent thinkers.

Apparently he forgot his own words. "Philosopher Noam Chomsky argued that those who remain unvaccinated should be segregated, saying that obtaining food after they had 'the decency to remove themselves from the community' was 'their problem.'" He "compared people who do not want to get vaccinated to those who do not want to stop at red lights in traffic, saying that if people treasure their liberty so much, they should 'find a way to protect it and secure it for [themselves].'" https://www.yahoo.com/video/noam-chomsky-unvaccinated-remove-themselves-171900487.html?guccounter=1

Touche. That was terrible. What an asshole be became in that moment. This pandemic brought out his inner authoritarian. And it's amazing that he just bought right into the standard corporate/CDC/DOD/fascist mantra that these vaccines are "safe and effective." What happened to Chomsky's critical thinking?

Expand full comment

Come to think of it, what happened to Chomsky's *ethical* thinking? That was always supposed to be his area of strength.

But these vaccines were so leaky, so far from capable of preventing the spread of SARS-CoV-2, that there was no ethical case to make for mandatory injection. If drugs are to be mandated for society at large, they can only ethically be mandated if there's a proven benefit for other people. It's also important that the drug's safety profile be well established. Or at least well understood. And these mRNA injections did not have a well established, well understood safety profile at the time Chomsky said that. (Will they ever?)

And yet Chomsky, this legendary critic and revealer of US government lies, showed no skepticism! Indeed, he demonstrated complete credulity. He apparently just believed the CDC's public statements, which, in at least one case, had been based on Pfizer press releases.

And even though we have them on tape saying what they are saying... people still deny the truth of the <1% death rate. It's mind boggling to me. And I am glad we have them in tape for the reckoning. It may be 10 years. It will happen. Enough people are awake and more wakening every day.

All things being equal % below poverty level is the biggest factor at the population level in America…but upwards 30% of those hospitalized died in the initial wave from spread before public health mitigation measures and development of medical best practices and obviously vaccines.

The same bunch of losers were absolutely opposed to ‘Trump’s vaccine’ - not safe. Then ‘suddenly’ (just like the effect of the death jabs) once Trump was gone, they were all for it - Safe and Effective.

seems to be just the political game.

when your political party is in power, you go along with the big money forces (pharma, defense contractors, wall street, the security state, etc) and greedily rake in their lobbying dollars.

but when your party is out of power, you criticize the other party for allying itself with big money forces.

2016-17 Flu cases= 29 million, Covid Cases= 0;

2017-18 Flu Cases= 45 million, Covid Cases= 0;

2018-19 Flu Cases= 36 million, Covid Cases= 0;

2019-2020 Flu Cases= 38 million, Covid Cases= 0;

2020-21 Flu Cases = .0015 Million, Covid Cases= 32 Million

The Covid-19 death rate is precisely zero as there is no such thing as "Covid-19" except in the hologram world, tabletop exercises and propaganda systems.

Covid-19, the disease, is nothing more than a disease of ATTRIBUTION.

Covid-19, the media event, was the Trojan Horse constructed to usher in a complete transformation of our society.

Covid-19, the operation, was never an epidemiological event, it is a business model meant to increase the portfolios of the super-wealthy.

There is no such thing as “Covid 19” except as a criminal conspiracy.

You are correct.

1. Covid in 2020 was just a rebranding of the seasonal flu (which 'mysteriously' disappeared according to the WHO themselves).

2. 2020 was a normal year in terms of excess mortality.

3. In fact many countries experienced BELOW AVERAGE mortality in 2020 (Spain, Ireland, Australia etc)

4. Localised and brief spikes in excess mortality were created (especially during March / April) in specific hospitals/ care homes through the use of Midazolam, ventilators, DNR's, starvation, neglect etc. These isolated pockets of chaos and death (such as Elmhurst hospital NTC) were where the media set up camp and reported on every evening.

5. Meanwhile, the MAJORITY of hospitals were half empty, with whole wards shut down, staff watching Netflix or making tik tok videos etc.

6. Doctors and nurses who kept quiet were rewarded with free food, praise, clapping, ego boosts, certificates (more ego boosts) etc. Staff who blew the whistle (or just questioned the narrative publicly) were suspended, fired, attacked and even labelled as mentally ill. This is why the majority kept their mouths shut (or blew the whistle anonymously).

7. Throughout 2020 while people were glued to the TV 'covid movie', social media was full of posts from ordinary people as well as healthcare workers reporting how cancer, heart disease, dementia, diabetes, road traffic fatalities etc were being labelled 'covid'. Most of these posts got censored - a policy all social media platforms openly admitted to signing up to.

8. In the US hospitals got financial incentives ($10,000 and more) for each covid diagnosis or covid death certificate. Autopsies were banned.

As you say, covid was a media event. It was a MIME ACT. The overblown crisis response (masks, stickers, perspex screens, hazmat suits, 'tests', lockdowns, closed businesses, elbow bumping, social distancing, celebrity online concerts, endless press conferences with a sombre tone etc) gave most people the FEELING that there must be a crisis. The overblown response made people 'see' a crisis... just like a mime artist's movements make the audience 'see' a door or a wall.

The only other detail worth mentioning is that there is no such thing as 'pathogenic, contagious viruses'. Viruses are a product of disease, not a cause (which invalidates the definition of virus). Virology is a pseudo science. The so called 'virus' (SARS COV2) can be found in just about anything, using standard virology techniques (CPE/ genome assembly).

The PCR 'test' is the equivalent of declaring a 'house fire' based on detecting a single particle of soot (such as a burnt toast crumb under your toaster). Based on this criteria every house can be labelled 'on fire' even without any smoke or flames present ('asymptomatic house fire') and a 'pandemic' ('global inferno') can be declared.

Anyone pointing out there are no actual house fires (no more than usual anyway) is labelled a 'fire denier'.

Covid is just gaslighting on a global scale in the age of mass media.

Germ theory as a whole is a highly profitable misconception. The alternative lab leak/ GOF narratives are there to fold 'truthers' back into the false germ theory paradigm (ie we're allowed to argue over natural vs genetically modified unicorns - but not whether unicorns actually exist).

Here's a very good thread on Elmhurst:


Expand full comment

Nailed it mostly.

Will quibble with #2 and #5.

There was in fact excess mortality in 2020 in the US and other locales which had nothing to do with an imagined virus. It was straightforward medical murder and economic slaughter via lockdown impacts.

Here are figures for 2020-2021.

The United States reported 3,353,787 deaths for the 52 weeks of 2020 (all years of age). Expected deaths were 2,920,345. That is an increase of +433,442 deaths (+14.8%).

The United States reported 3,457,517 deaths for the 52 weeks of 2021 (all years of age). Expected deaths were 2,947,287. That is an increase of +510,230 deaths (+17.3%).

And ALL of the hospitals were half empty including Elmhurst, NYC-Presbyterian and Maimonides (where the greatest number of supposed "Covid deahts" occurred).

Go here and you can see the data on this:

I've read other statistics showing 2020 was pretty normal in the US. But I've never been able to quite figure out what the true figure is (I'm not in a position to argue with your stats).

I know the UK had higher deaths than normal in 2020 (although no worse than 2008 and every year previous).

It does seem the UK and US got hammered more than other countries, which - to me - only shows it was covid policies (not 'viruses') that caused the deaths. The more government imposed itself, the more carnage was caused.

As for Elmhurst, from what I understand (from whistleblowers) all suspected 'covid' cases were directed to Elmhurst (and probably a few other hospitals around NYC), where they were put on vents which mostly killed them.

But at the same time regular people urged to stay away, scheduled surgeries and screenings were cancelled and most people were too frightened to visit hospitals for other ailments (or even leave the house), which resulted in lower overall patient numbers.

So yeah, your stats are right I'm sure.... but at the same time I think the designated 'covid' wards and ICU's were still full of 'cases' .... mostly just people with the flu or just anxiety, who had made the fatal error of going to the hospital which was basically instructed to kill them with vents.

I think they deliberately created these isolated 'pockets' of chaos and death, within a largely empty and shut down healthcare system, with exhausted nurses suffocating in their PPE being shown to the public as evidence of a 'health crisis'.

But most of the nurses were not on those wards. They were dancing, watching Netflix or playing cards by all accounts. And getting fat on all the free food.

Trying to explain any of this to your average TV watcher is like trying to teach a dog calculus. I am probably guilty of over simplifying my points just to get the message across!

2019 was an unusually quiet year for viruses anyway, so you need to figure that there was a lot of 'dry tinder' around in 2020. But once you add up the two years, then compare with previous two year periods, many countries start to look like no excess deaths at all.

The problem is that the 'winter flu' season is really anywhere from September to April or so.

Yes we were talking about the lack of flus and colds back in 2020. Later it became apparent they had been renamed Covid to boost the covid fear factor. I am not even talking about the people in hospitals left to lie in bed until they got "hospital pneumonia" and then were classified as Covid then intubated, given remdesivir and died

I am finding it more than unbelievable Dr. John Ioannidis had anything to do with CNN, one of the worse TV news stations for fearmongering and misinformation. However, he was one of the experts, who convinced me I was not at risk nor were my family of dying from covid and we certainly were not taking the covid experimental biologicals.

Thank you, Matt.

There is also a near silence on SBF financial fraud of the century. For good reasons -- massive financial corruption of DNC operatives and critical role of once famous Stanford University in massive DNC/CIA censorship network:

Remember -- Stanford administrative terror led to suicide of a wonderful and beloved-by-all goalie of women soccer team. The ratio of administrative "woke" surveillance to students is close to 1:1.

Stanford University is now fully dominated by Censorship Industrial Complex and has myriad censorship operators and entities, including infamous Renee DiResta of “Stanford Internet Observatory”.

IMPORTANT -- just look whom SBF (Samuel Bankman-Fried) and his parents (both full-time Stanford Law School professors – father also a full-time employee of criminal FTX and Alameda $40B swindle and mother - financing arm of Dem. party) – whom they financed by hundreds of millions of dollars.

IMPORTANT - SBF "investments" dominated "Covid pandemic activities"...:

And two things were conflated: Case Fatality Rate (CFR) and Infection Fatality Rate (IFR). Trump actually was talking about Infection Fatality Rate and he was correct although maybe he dud not understand there was a difference. I think it settled at around 0.2% to 0.6% - similar to ‘flu. But in any case, the WHO turds did not make it clear the 3.4% was CFR (mistake ?) and in fact the clowns at Imperial College London mistakenly (?) used CFR in their crappy computer modelling to get their Infection Fatality numbers 500 000 deaths in the UK, 2 million dead in the US. I believe the actual CFR was 2% to 3% - about the same for a bad ‘flu strain. Also both fatality rates were not across the board being highest among the elderly in poor health and immune compromised individuals. For under 70 in good health, they were negligible.

Yes the WHO did not technically 'lie', they just misdirected. And thanks to all the drama very few people picked up on the misdirection at the time. I remember journalist Benn Swann picked up on it, to his credit.

The WHO's 3.4% rate for 'covid' is the same as for the flu when you measure the flu in the same way. The flu disappeared in 2020. Covid was just a rebranding of the flu, and it was made to feel more deadly by using this non standard way of calculating the fatality rate.

The mainstream media provided cover for the misdirection with their 24/7 hysterical fear mongering. The cherry on the cake was Trump telling everyone it was just the flu.... which of course, made everyone scoff at the idea and align themselves with the media's deadly plague narrative. That was a masterful use of reverse psychology.
